Liverpool – Albert Dock

This entry is a repost with added material.

Today I will share with you some photographs from my trip to Liverpool, more specifically the famous Albert Dock.

Albert Dock is a complex of dock buildings and warehouses that was completed in 1846. It enabled ships to be loaded from warehouses directly and was the first structure in Britain built without wood using cast iron, bricks and stone. Today it’s a popular tourist attraction.

The above three pictures appeared previously in my post Wanderlust. This was my participation in now dead WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I have now added three more:

Liverpool has some sick museums, seriously. I’ve not been to the Museum of Liverpool that is shown on the last pic, but I have visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum and also World Museum that is near the Lime Street train station. And there is, of course, the Beatles Story, because you can’t mention Liverpool without mentioning the Beatles!

The reason for the repost is that I felt that Albert Dock, or anything Liverpool really, is too good and too big to be hidden under an entry titled “Wanderlust”–when I don’t use that word anywhere else on this blog–and part of a challenge that has long since been killed by WordPress (RIP). It deserves its own properly titled post. So here it is–with three more pics.

I guess it’s like what a music artist would call a remix.

Also, one of the other things Liverpool is famous for is a certain four-member rock band you may or may not have heard of.

I did visit the Beatles Story, the museum dedicated to all things Beatles, so hopefully I will post some pictures from there soon.

Obladi oblada, life goes on.
